Day trading takes time, patience and dedication. When I was day trading stocks in 2012/2013, it consumed a lot of my time. When day trading you are looking for a point to enter a trade and a point to exit a trade. The goal is to use the information you have alongside the charts to find an opportunity to make a profit. You may hold a trade for a matter of minutes, hours or days. Rarely though are you long term investing. Your investment timescale is usually based on the signals the charts are giving you.
Goldman Sachs says blockchain technology “has the potential to redefine transactions” and will “change everything”. But anyone who claims to fully understand how blockchain works, and is not named Satoshi Nakamoto, is probably lying to you. And anyone who claims to be Nakamoto himself, is probably also lying to you. Fortunately, just like the internet, you don’t need to know how blockchain works to use it.
Naturally, this makes crypto very interesting for trading – which, incidentally keeps it growing. Digital currencies can also be an appealing choice for beginners. That said, before you dive in head-first, it’s a good idea to make sure you know a few important points about cryptocurrency trading.
Sometimes you think you see a chocolate pudding, and it turns out to be a bowl of shit. It all looked so well for the HempCoin ($THC) when we wrote our Hodl That #8, and at first, the plan seemed to work out nicely, even with the bitcoin moves that massacred altcoins across the board. The support around 2k sats held bravely and once the team behind $thc published their new whitepaper, with further masternodes and other significant pieces of information for a bright future the price went up slowly. And then it went it south. It dived deeper then Hagbard…
Price has come down sharply to the floor of the Cloud and has hit the Weekly S2 and the 50% fib of the recent upswing. There is also Hidden Bullish Divergence between current levels and the Feb 6 low, even though the current move hasn’t bottomed out just yet. The whole process of shifting trend on the daily timeframe takes time and I think that is what we are …
Trading with leverage in the cryptos is like juggling Cobras. Don’t fucking do it if you’re not a professional trader. The crypto markets move too fast and you can easily lose someone else’s money that you don’t have to pay back. Not good.
Compared to bitcoin trader, alt coin trader might be having more chances to get at least one trade for every day, but when we are having more options we will be misleading to wrong trades other than that concentrating on technical analysis with many options will be difficult for any trader.
$1000 trade on dogebtc 4 time I lose almost $11500 I don’t understand yet why he trade with this dead coin and why he wait a while to close or why hi trade with this coin. Like I said him today in the morning I don’t understand nothing but you did not made the best with my account
Not all traders make gains from trading, since this is a zero-sum game (for everyone who benefits someone else loses on the other side).The Altcoins market is driven by large whales (yes, the same ones responsible for placing huge blocks of hundreds of Bitcoins on the order book). The whales are just waiting patiently for innocent little fish like us to make mistakes. Even if you aspire to trade on a daily basis, sometimes it is better not to earn and do nothing, instead of jumping into the rushing water and exposing your coins to losses. From my experience, there are days where you only keep your profits by not trading at all.
That bold green candle yells at you “you are the only one not holding me”. At exactly this point you will notice lame people flooding the Crypto forums and the exchanges’ Troll boxes to talk about this pump. But what do we do now? Very simple, Keep moving forward. True, it’s possible that many may have caught the rise ahead of us and it can continue raising, but bare in mind that the whales (as mentioned above) are just waiting for small buyers on the way up to sell them the coins they bought in cheaper prices. Prices are now high and it’s clear that the current coin holders only consist of those little fish. Needless to say, the next step is usually the bright red candle which sells through the whole order book.
Another thing I need to make clear is the type of trading I do – day trading. My base currency is Bitcoin, which I use to buy Altcoins like Ethereum, ZCash, Golem, etc. When I make a trade to buy an Altcoin with BTC, I could end up selling the Altcoin back BTC within a matter of minutes or hours. All of my profits are converted back into BTC at the end of each trading day.
So, let’s put everything on the table. ICOs are essentially coins which you get by supplying someone with currently successful crypto coins so that they have a chance to make new future proof and even more successful coins. It seems silly, but somehow these ICO transactions are actually making a huge buzz in the cryptocurrency world. It is estimated that nearly $240 million has already been invested into such ICOs, of which about $110 million was invested this year. Surely there is a reason for such a huge movement of money? We think that people are constantly searching for that new and shiny cryptocurrency that will inevitably become the world currency system, and perhaps this is the reason why investments into this research are so high. Some of you might say that the potential is already there via Bitcoin or some other already released currency, but the reality is that not everyone is on the same page. Those of us who are so called non-conformists might be looking for something special in other places.
You only need $25,000 to trade penny stocks if you open a margin account. If you open a regular Cash account then you can daytrade with any amount, only drawback is you have to wait a settlement period of 3 days after each trade to get the proceeds of that trade back into your account. Also these rules only apply to traders in the U.S. .. Other countries have different rules… As far as your question on coins, I am invested in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Steemit, and Library.. I have core positions in each of those, that I will not sell for years to come.. But almost daily I am trading many of the other altcoins, in and out, to grow my Bitcoin pot.
